In an Instagram live this week Kylie explained how Stormi was very nearly given the 141st most common baby girl name in America.
When Kylie Jenner introduced baby Stormi to the world, her unique name wasn't super surprising. After all, the second-generation of Kardasian-Jenner kids is includes kids called North, Reign and Saint. We all knew Kylie wasn't going to call this baby Emma or Liam.
But she recently revealed that she did almost give Stormi a very traditional name: Rose.
In an Instagram live this week Kylie explained how Stormi was very nearly given the 141st most common baby girl name in America. Had baby Stormi been called baby Rose, she would have been part of a growing trend. The name Rose has been steadily growing in popularity since 2010, according to the Social Security Administration.
Kylie shared the name Rose in her Instagram Live because she says she's now pretty sure she's never going to use it for a future daughter, so she's not worried about someone else grabbing it up. But there's another name that was between Stormi and Rose that she's keeping to herself.
"It was a very weird name," Kylie told her followers, noting that she actually preferred it to Stormi before her daughter was born. "But I love it. It just didn't work for her."
What did work was Stormi, obviously. Kylie, she started calling her daughter by the name when she was carrying her, and as many mamas know, in-belly nicknames can end up sticking.
"I looked up names, and I saw Storm, and I really liked that. But I wanted her to have an 'ie' at the end of her name like me, Kylie and Stormie," Kylie says.
"When I was pregnant, I used to call her Stormi when I would talk to her in my belly. And it just always felt right. I had one more name that I liked—I had two names that I honestly liked better than Stormi but when I had her, I felt like she chose her own name. And I just couldn't imagine any other name other than Stormi, so yeah."
We can't imagine Stormi being anything but Stormi, but Rose would have been super cute, too.
